Spending time with his grandkids was one of his greatest pastimes.

He was a well rounded man who enjoyed life and lived it to the fullest. He will be greatly missed by everyone.

Don’t think of him as gone away his journeys just begun
life holds many facets this earth is only one.
Just think of him as resting from the sorrows and tears
in a place of warmth and comfort where there are no days and years.
Think of how he must be wishing that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness can really pass away.
And think of him as living in the hearts of those he touched
For nothing loved is ever lost And he was loved so much.

Private services will be held at the convenience of the family.
